Melendez, Henderson, Thomson, and Miller are all ranked ahead of Maynard he has fights at LW.
He is still considered the number one contender. Gil has a fight lined up, but I could see him or TJ getting the shot against Pettis. (If/when Gilbert beats Sanchez) I don't think Pettis vs. Aldo should happen yet. Let Pettis get some defenses under his belt. He has only won his last 4 fights, one being an ehh split decision win over Jeremy Stephens. How long will Pettis' injury put him out for though?
